Proverbs 22:3 NLT

A prudent person foresees danger and takes precautions. The simpleton goes blindly on and suffers the consequences.

In Defense Of A Nation

Thursday, July 14, 2016

This is huge for Colorado - amendment 69 is bad for Colorado businesses and taxpayers - Listen 1 hour - Randy Corporon speaks with Frank Francone in the studio as we dig through the paperwork to discuss the truth of Amendment 69. Peter Boyles Show - July 14, 2016 - Hr 3 - Below news link is audio

It would create the first and only such system in the nation, which is problematic for several reasons. The insurance industry, state and local chambers, trade associations and a number of health care providers strongly oppose the measure.

Amendment 69 opponents “Coloradans for Coloradans” put it succinctly: “Regardless of whether you support single-payer health care for the nation… one state cannot set up a single-payer island amidst 49 other states.”

The biggest issues:

  • Paying for such a system amounts to a $25 billion tax increase for the state, nearly doubling the size of Colorado’s current $27 billion budget.
  • Being the first state to embark on an untested system leaves open myriad questions about costs, coverage, access to care, accountability, regulation and transparency.
  • Coloradans would lose their existing coverage, with no guarantee that the board of trustees overseeing the plan would replicate their former coverage.
  • Amendment 69 would require the Colorado General Assembly to repeal or amend the Workers’ Compensation Act and other laws concerning the provision of medical care for workers who suffer work-related injuries and illnesses and the payment of premiums for medical benefits.

The details:

  • The plan calls for a 3.33 percent payroll tax increase for employees and 6.67 percent increase for employers, as well as a 10 percent "health care premium tax” on non-payroll income. That puts a tremendous burden on small businesses and sole proprietorships.
  • The 21-member board will be elected by “members of the plan,” and there are no provisions about whether the system would be regulated by, or accountable to, the state, elected officials or the people.
  • Private insurance and Medicaid would go away. The Colorado insurance industry would undergo a substantial loss of jobs and income in its health care and workers’ compensation sectors.
Because government health care programs reimburse providers at substantially lower levels than private health care insurers, Children’s Hospital Colorado has said it fears it will be unable to recruit the “best and brightest” medical talent to Colorado, threatening access to care for its residents. Future medical providers will simply go elsewhere to establish practices.
